Does anyone see bcortez lurking with a Beer Bottle to brain me with?
Too bad. Introducing Pearlesence is the absolute "Bomb" as far as lightening up the Gray without losing the Gray's contrast assisting properties.
Unless you can accept that a re-constituted SS w/ Pearl would be a "best choice", then the alternative is to simply use a lighter, neutral Gray.

Too bad your restricting you options when the simple addition of the White Pear would do wonders. Pearlesence does not introduce "Graininess" but it does in the least (...and in the right amount...) keep your Gain at 1.0 or ever so slightly higher
"glitter or sparkly things". What drives that remark?
